COVID-19: Rapid PCR test lab at Dubai Airports to produce results in 3-4 hours

Dubai Airports is setting up a laboratory to conduct PCR tests which will produce results in just 3-4 hours and help improve passenger traffic flow through Dubai International.

While speaking at the Arabian Travel Market 2021 on Wednesday, Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports said Dubai has not passed on the burden of medical security for arriving passengers and also kept the medical aspect very un-intrusive that maintained the emirate at the top of the list of desirable places to come.

The CEO said if biometric vaccine passports are up and running across the world, then it can be a possible substitute for PCR tests over time.

He, however, stressed that airports or airlines will not be invading the privacy of the passengers through digital vaccination passports.
